We have just released a highly requested feature in Gtmhub – the ability to format text in OKRs.

From now on, you can format any text in the long format, including the custom fields, using markdown format.

Quick example

Let me show you a quick example of formatting objective description.

When saved, the description of this objective will be formatted as follows:

Quick reference

You can find a full reference to markdown format here. However, in most cases, very few formatting options will get the job done.

Headers

# H1
## H2
### H3
#### H4
##### H5
###### H6

Emphasis

Bold: **word** or __word__
Italic: *word* or _word_

Lists

Unordered list:

* item1
* item2

Ordered list:

1. item1
2. item2

Markdown formatting will be applied to all long text fields, regardless if they are built-in or custom. Also, the formatting is applied both in the detail view of an objective, as well as in the grid.
